Welcome... Our InnerSelf welcomes your inner self.
As we've all heard, doubtless numerous times, when life hands you lemons make lemonade. This week we remind you (and ourselves) that we have many paths that we can choose as we travel along in life. We can "Take the Vulnerable Path" and we can use this "Opportunity To Take The Road Less Traveled". And of course we always have the choice of "Reassessing and Rebuilding Our Lives and Letting The Path Be Our Teacher".
These and many other articles this week can help shed light on our next steps, on how to attain our dreams, and create the life we have dreamed of (or perhaps have not dared dream of).
We also have, as usual, numerous "additional articles" on topics ranging from health, to parenting, climate change, and our current social and political situation. We invite you to read these articles with an open mind and an open heart, and discover new perspectives, insights, and possibilities for our future and the future of our children and our planet.
Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.
Marie T. Russell

EDITOR'S CHOICE ARTICLES
Written by Noelle Sterne, Ph.D.
Like strangers, and every person in our path, we encounter acquaintances and friends for a reason. More accurately, we attract them. Sometimes the reasons appear obvious, and at other times the reasons are not obvious at all and may take months or years to dawn.

Written by Master Charles Cannon.
Underneath the dogma, we’re all pretty much the same and we want very similar things. We may differ wildly on how to achieve them, but if we start with objectives that we can agree on, like safety for our children, health care for all of us, an economy that rewards honest work, etc., then perhaps...

Written by Nigel Wellings.
Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) teaches us that what makes the stresses in our life particularly damaging is how we mismanage them. The tendency to resist or willfully ignore our situation, misperceive and have fixed ideas about who we are and the reality we inhabit, is slowly replaced with mindfulness...

Written by Blake Bauer.
When we allow our fears to drive our choices, the actions we do not take and the opportunities we allow to pass us by are symbolic of us rejecting the life we genuinely desire. Conversely, when we find the courage to face our fears directly...

Written by Jude Bijou, M.A., M.F.T.
People tend to throw around a lot of words to describe their emotions and feelings. We're confused or we feel frustrated. We're hurt or we're excited. Whatever the label, deciphering feelings from emotions can be a bit perplexing. If we start by learning the difference there are big rewards.

Written by Eileen Campbell.
When a crisis erupts in our lives, we need to ask ourselves what is really going on. Whatever form it takes, it’s usually some kind of wake-up call. However difficult the circumstances are, we need to trust that something isn’t working and is trying to change— ultimately for our benefit.

It is also highly beneficial to reread the past week's astrological journal as it gives a hindsight view of the events that took place and may provide many "ah-ha" insights.
We add articles to the website daily. Rather than wait for the newsletter, you can visit each section according to your interests throughout the week. Each section listed below is designed as its own "mini-website".
The "Living in Harmony" section includes articles on Health & Well-Being, Home & Garden, Pets, Leisure & Creativity, Finance & Careers, and Science and Technology.
The "Personal Development" area covers Attitude Adjustments (which includes Fear, Anger, Gratitude, Forgiveness), Relationships & Parenting, Spirituality & Mindfulness (including Meditation), Intuition & Awareness (including astrology), and Happiness & Success.
"Social & Political" covers topics that affect us personally yet deal with a more "societal" or "political" sphere. This area covers Environment & Climate, Democracy, Justice, Inequality, Economy, and more. These topics are very relevant for our communal journey on Planet Earth.
